Island Sands condo description

You’ll love this beautiful, elegant and relaxing beachfront condo. From your private patio with panoramic shoreline view you’ll enjoy the most breathtaking sunrises and sunsets on the emerald shores of the Gulf of Mexico. The first floor location opens directly to beach and parking lot -- no struggling up stairs with luggage!!

The fully glassed back opens onto a patio just a few yards from the private Island Sands boardwalk that provides direct access to the sugar sand beach. The interior is professionally decorated, and features original artwork by local artisans.

Panoramic Coast Line View

I'm proud to own a place on these sugar white sandy beaches. In my opinion you will not find more amazing beaches anywhere. There is a vacant lot to the east of the condo tht gives you a 'Panoramic coast Line' view that is unbelievable.
One great thing about staying on Okaloosa Island is that there are fewer condos which mean fewer guests.
I lived here for several years and the traffic is minimal. Destin is only about 5 miles away so you can have convenient access to shopping, dolphin cruises, and fishing excursions.
There is always room at the pool if you perfer quite, since it is for our quests only.

I know you will enjoy this getaway and return every chance you get.

No Hidden Fees: I have priced my condo at a reasonable price and included all taxes and cleaning, so there is no hidden fees.

There is a $200.00 REFUNDABLE deposit to reserve your stay, and that deposit is returned after your stay if there are no damages.
I supply many things such as; beach chairs, umbrella, (2)snorkeling gear, a boogie board, air mattresses, (2) flashlights for ghost crabbing, and several other items.
The kitchen is fully equipped and I also keep such things as baggies, foil, salt, pepper, coffee, hot chocolate, tea, and other spices, so you will want to check the condo before going to the store.

                          Okaloosa Island is a long, narrow stretch of land located between Destin and Ft. Walton Beach, Florida. It is a largely undeveloped 4 mile stretch of sugar-white sandy beaches and dunes. In fact, 3/4's of the island is park and government land and is totally undeveloped.

                          Island Sands Condominiums sits right on one of the most stunning beaches on the Gulf of Mexico. Also, Okaloosa Island prohibits condos greater than 6 floors so you can enjoy the less crowed beaches. However, you are only a few miles from The Boardwalk, Okaloosa Island fishing pier, Conference Center, Gulfarium, some of the best restaurants in all of Florida, and only 5 miles from Destin.

                          About the owner: Hello all. I currently live in Georgia, but

                          Why the Owner Chose Island Sands:
                          I spent most of 10 years on the beaches of North Florida, and none compared to 'Okaloosa Island'. When I saw this place, I had to figure out how to have a piece of it. I have live in many state all around the US, but have never seen such an AMAZING place. There are very few places in the United States that have this quality of soft, bright, white sand. You will understand what I mean when you visit. Nowhere compares to these sugar white beaches.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          The Condo is directly on the beach, and we have the end unit so you can enjoy a panoramic view with a small yard lush green yard. The condo was professionally decorated with adult taste in mind. I adore the artwork I have from a local artist. The view from the patio is pronominal. You can see the entire coastline right from the patio.
